    10-year old standing on a dresser to quilt her first quilt

    when my youngest granddaughter made her first quilt it was pretty important to her that she do it all herself- so we tipped a dresser on it's side for her to stand on so she could quilt it Name:  quiltshop 092 (2).jpg

    You should have your granddaughter write about her quilt making experience. Send both the story and picture to Handiquilter.....she might get on their website

    well done. I started to sew when I was 8 but nobody taught me to quilt, just think of all those lost years when I could have been quilting

    Looks like she is in deep concentration. Yup, think you have a career quilter in the family now.

    I think this is GREAT! Start them young and they'll have a lifetime of enjoyment ahead of them.

    not worried a bit --- i also have steps for people who are shorter than me to use when quilting that are not as high as her (platform)- she had a step-stool ladder to get up- and it was totally stable- we've had many kids since quilt their quilts with this (platform/dresser)- and have been checked out for safety.
    this is kind of an old picture- i just happened to come across it and share it- she is now 15-
    the only thing osha rules said the kids could not do was use a rotory cutter...they had to cut with scissors-or have an adult cut for them. this was taken in the sewing school almost 6 years ago....we've come a long way since then

    How wonderful another generation is into quilting. Does she have her own little fabric stash yet?
